9/28/16 Raeford Davis

Raeford Davis, a former police officer in South Carolina and member of LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition), discusses the murder of Levonia Riggins by a Tampa, Florida SWAT team armed to the teeth for a drug raid that ultimately uncovered 2 grams of marijuana – enough for one joint.

9/26/16 Grant F. Smith

Grant F. Smith, director of research at the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy and author of Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America, discusses the poll showing Americans think the US’s $38 billion military aid package to Israel would be better spent elsewhere, and IRMEP’s lawsuit claiming aid to Israel is downright illegal.

9/25/16 Nasser Arrabyee

Nasser Arrabyee, a Yemeni journalist based in Sanaa, discusses the US Senate’s rejection of Rand Paul’s joint resolution to block a billion dollar arms deal to Saudi Arabia, and why the US feels the need to placate the Saudis over the Iran nuclear deal – even though the destruction of Yemen helps Al Qaeda and ISIS gain power.

9/21/16 Joe Lauria

Joe Lauria, an independent journalist covering international affairs, discusses the possibility of an “October surprise” assault on the Islamic State’s stronghold in Mosul before US elections; the beginnings of a Turkish land-grab in Syria; and Obama’s curious Eisenhower-like UN farewell address, revealing the president he might have been without “Deep State” interference.

9/19/16 Trevor Thrall

Trevor Thrall, a senior fellow for the Cato Institute’s Defense and Foreign Policy Department, discusses the “restraint constituency” of Americans who are generally non-interventionist in foreign policy, and how they can rein in the interventionist tendencies of America’s political leaders.

9/16/16 Yakov Hirsch

Yakov Hirsch, a professional poker player and writer at Mondoweiss.net, discusses preeminent American Jewish journalist/activist Jeffrey Goldberg’s strange silence on Israel’s recent negative news coverage; and how Netanyahu’s shameless antisemitism propaganda is poisoning Israeli society.

9/16/16 Jason Ditz

Jason Ditz, news editor for Antiwar.com, discusses why the “moderate” US-backed Free Syrian Army threatened to slaughter US special forces advisors on the ground in Syria; why Donald Trump thinks 38 billion in US aid to Israel isn’t enough; and the continuing wars in Libya and Yemen.

9/16/16 Stanley L. Cohen

Stanley L. Cohen, a lawyer and human rights activist who has done extensive work in the Middle East and Africa, discuses why the US government sabotaged his negotiations with the Islamic State to free humanitarian aid worker Peter Kassig, who was executed in 2014; and why a Hillary Clinton presidency would be bad news for Palestinians.

9/11/16 Gareth Porter

Gareth Porter, an award-winning journalist and historian, discusses the US-Russia agreement on a ceasefire in Syria; the Pentagon’s bureaucratic opposition to friendly Russia relations; and why there aren’t any moderate “good guys” in Syria for the US to support – never mind the interventionists claiming otherwise.

 

9/8/16 Shashank Bengali

Shashank Bengali, South Asia correspondent for the LA Times, discusses why the Iranian nuclear agreement reached early this year hasn’t created the economic and jobs recovery promised by President Rouhani; and the likely return of anti-American hard-line politicians like Ahmadinejad if conditions don’t improve before elections in 2017.
